Fernvale is a neighbourhood of Sengkang New Town in Singapore. It is located between Sungei Punggol and the proposed Sengkang West Industrial Estate. The house numbers of the public apartment blocks in Fernvale begin with the number '4' (4xx). Fernvale is the newest neighbourhood in Sengkang Town to be completed by the Housing and Development Board (HDB). Seletar Mall, a new shopping amenity which houses Sengkang's first cineplex, is located within this neighbourhood. In 2017, A proposed community facility to be located next to Seletar Mall was announced, which houses a community club, childcare centre, hawker centre and wet market. The community facility is slated to be ready by the second half of 2020.[citation needed]

Public Transport[edit]

Before 2003, the only way to go to Fernvale was Service 371 from Sengkang Bus Interchange. Now, the Fernvale neighbourhood is linked to the Sengkang Bus Interchange, Compassvale Bus Interchange and MRT/LRT Station at the town centre via bus services originating from the Sengkang Bus Interchange, Compassvale Bus Interchange and other parts of the island. The west loop of Sengkang LRT Line also serves the area, passing by 4 stops located within the neighborhood(Layar, Fernvale, Thanggam and Kupang). The service 371 was later replaced by 163 and 163A (former 163M).

Bus service 85, which plies between Punggol and Yishun, was amended to serve Anchorvale and Fernvale to better serve residents living in Sengkang West.

Bus service 86, which plies between Ang Mo Kio and Sengkang, connects residents to the Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park 3 along Yio Chu Kang Road, Yio Chu Kang MRT Station, Ang Mo Kio Town Centre, the Seletar Camp Gate Transfer Hub and Rivervale.

Bus service 50, was introduced to ply between Bishan, Ang Mo Kio, Sengkang & Punggol neighbourhoods on 15 December 2012. The introduction of the service connects Punggol East, Anchorvale & Fernvale residents to Ang Mo Kio/Bishan Town where direct connectivity to those areas don't exist previously. It also serves as a faster alternative to Sengkang MRT/LRT Station for Fernvale & Anchorvale(West) residents as compared to 163, complementing the LRT.

Bus service 103 has been extended from Seletar Airport to Yishun Temporary Bus Interchange to connect the workers in Seletar Aerospace Park to Yishun Town. It also serves as an alternative service to Yishun and Serangoon for Fernvale residents living very close to Jalan Kayu.

Bus service 102, which plies between Hougang Central Interchange and Seletar Airport, connects northern Fernvale & Anchorvale residents to Jalan Kayu, Sengkang MRT/LRT Station, Buangkok and the Seletar Aerospace Park/Airport.

Feeder bus service 374, was introduced to connect Sengkang Town Centre to Sengkang West via Anchorvale Crescent, looping at Fernvale Road outside Thanggam LRT Station.

The area is within the vicinity of Jalan Kayu, the proposed Sengkang West Industrial Estate and Seletar Hills Estate along Yio Chu Kang Road. Due to the construction of Sengkang West Road, a section of Jalan Kayu between Sengkang West Avenue and Yio Chu Kang Road had to be expunged.[needs update]
